Before the Ballot: How to Prepare for an Election

March 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Before you bring any issue before voters, it’s essential to go through assessment and planning as a library leadership team. While it is important to articulate how much funding is necessary to support your programs or facility needs, it is critical to root the reasons for asking for new funding in your library’s mission, vision, and values. Your strategic plan or building plan should be an expression of your values. Voters, constituents, and donors are driven by their attitudes of the library as an institution as well as the perceptions of the librarians and staff. Join us for this free webinar with special guest John Chrastka of EveryLibrary as we explore key considerations that are necessary to determine how to go to the ballot and what your library is asking for. Gain insights on how to convene and empower inside stakeholders around your message, build a local coalition about the library and its funding future, and explore ways to get past political and emotional blocks on your path to the ballot.

No registration is required! Simply log into Adobe Connect as a guest to attend. – https://enetlearning.adobeconnect.com/librarydevelopment/
